Holmes and Watson 1916-2016

Sherlock Holmes and his trusty sidekick Dr. Watson have been with us onscreen for 100 years. Video editor Sanguinity shows us 54 different iterations of the duo on film, from the 1916 silent film Sherlock Holmes to the web series S(her)lock, which launched this year. They include movies, TV shows, animation, and even video games. The clips are quick and jump around from era to era. What’s striking is that no matter who plays the part or what year the film was made, you always recognize the characters. You’ll find a list of the video sources here. (via Metafilter)
